Sometimes you want to be able to quickly access a website, without the big clunky desktop optimized interface. Treb allows you to do this by pinning mobile websites to the system tray for easy access. Here’s how to use it.

Head over to the developer’s website and download treb. Once the download has completed, unzip it.

You can grab a bunch of preconfigured trebs from here. To import them simply click the import button and browse for them.

Once you have imported a treb, an icon will immediately appear in the system tray, click on it to bring up the web app.

You could also make your own trebs, by clicking new instead of import.
